Because I fail every time I try to make these.

Ok not exactly fail but they are not as good as the ones I get from the local wing shop. I don't want to pay $20 for 5 pounds of wings when I can run down to Sam's and get 10 pounds for $15 and pick up some Franks Red Hot for a few dollars more and make them myself.

So what's Arfcom's prefered method of making wings? What's the secret to making the sauce, as straight up Frank's doesn't seem to work right; plus how do you make the ranch dip? Hidden Valley ranch dressing is too runny.

Deep fry thawed wings (375 for 10-12 min, until crisp).

Cover with Franks, and a *little* melted butter.

You find the bar with the coldest beer/big screen/wings and go there. It's far easier and, IMO, cheaper in the long run.

Mix melted butter with the hot sauce. Most wings are served with blue cheese dressing, not ranch. Go check out the Food Network for more info.

First you need to find a really small buffalo....

Heres how I do it. Deep fry those wings to how you like them, ad in some butter to the franks red hot OR buy franks buffalo sauce. The amount of butter depends on what type of hot-to-greasy ratio you want the wings to be. put the wings in a big bowl and pour the sauce on them, mix it up, then put them back in the oven only for a few minutes with sauce drizzled on them..

+1 the wings fall off after the first few weeks.

Chicken wings- scamming people into paying $14 a pound for chikens scraps.

I'm doing it the hard way today. Mine was cluckng this morning. Will be sizzling tonight (grilled).

I've taken to grilling wings lately. They really turn out good. Mot wing joints sell there sauce so if you find one you like, just buy a bottled.

How do you make Buffalo Wings? Call up The Anchor Bar in Buffalo and have them ship wings out to you: http://www.anchorbar.com/store.php

The invented the Buffalo Wing. If you're going to have wings you might as well have the real thing.

Edit: If you're going to do it, order the Suicidal wings.

All good buffalo sauces are a combination of the following

Fanks hot sauce
Franks extra hot
liquid butter
paprika
cayenne pepper
water

Use franks extra hot if you are looking for hot. Use regular franks if you are looking for medium. The biggest secret is to use a shitload of liquid butter. At least a 1/4 of the sauce is liquid butter. I used to work at a wing place. I can tell you how to make at least 30 different sauces. However the recipeis are to make 2 gallons at a time.

I'd love to have 2 gallons of Nuclear Honey Teryaki sauce from Wing Zone.

You got a recipe for something like that?
Link Posted: 9/19/2009 9:46:41 AM EST
All it takes is 1/2 stick of butter for every 1 cup of Franks. I fry the wings 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees without breading, just some salt and pepper on them. Cover with the Franks/butter mixture and you're good to go. They've been a hit every place I've taken them. Simple to make and great to eat!! I hate to admit it, but I got this from Martha Stewart one day when my wife was watching. Whatever the source, they're damn good.

All we had teryaki wise was plain teryaki. It sounds like an interesting combination though.

Thanks - sometimes I'll get hot sauce and teryaki from zaxby's and add honey to it - I love the hot honey/teryaki combination.

Deep Fry the wings and Franks with butter. Thats Buffalo Wings, if you want to go all gourmet then deep fry and use other sauces. I like to dice up a habanero or two and put in the Franks. Oh and a large Tupperware bowl with lid for dispersing the sauce amongst the wings.

The best wings outside of a bar that I have had were baked then put on the BBQ to finish up for a couple minutes. Labor intensive, but they were good.


The best wings in Las Vegas can be had at two places: The Draft House and The Tap House. They call them either twice baked wings or Cajun wings. Both places have the same basic thing. I don't know how they make them. Probably nothing to it, but I never asked.

That.

Anchor Bar's recipe is hands down the best one I have tasted:

Anchor Bar recipe

I seem to have misplaced my original copy, but the one above looks damn close. Google is your friend.

Frank's and Pete's ready made sauces are pretty good too when in a hurry.

Buy a deep fryer and follow directions for wings. Basically, max heat for 15-18 minutes (I like mine well cooked and crispy).

It's a lot of work to make from scratch. As others have stated, find a good place that delivers if you're a junkie.

i like mine crispy

1. preheat overn to 350. cook wings on baking sheet until crispy. about an hour and a half (spread canola or peanut oil on baking pan before you put the wings in the oven)
2. take hot sauce, brown sugar, and honey and put it in a pot on the stove and heat. add brown sugar and honey till you get your desired taste
3. dump crispy wings in bucket, pour sauce all over them. then shake the bucket to coat the wings. done




ETA: i use the oven becuse i don't have a deep fryer

Getting ready to grill my famous wings now. Just grill whole wings over charcoal, while they grill, take a stick of butter with a jar of Franks Red Hot, add a two table spoons of fresh garlic. When the wings are done pour the sauce over the sings, cover and shake for a minute. Eat.
